In Werewolves a supermoon event triggers a latent gene in every human on the planet, turning anyone who entered the moonlight into a werewolf for that one night. Chaos ensued and close to a billion people died. Now, a year later, the Supermoon is back. Above is a first look image.

Katrina Law (NCIS), Ilfenesh Hadera (Godfather Of Harlem), James Michael Cummings (City On The Hill) and Lou Diamond Phillips (Prodigal Son) also star in the recently completed film. Steven C. Miller (Line Of Duty) directs from a script by Matthew Kennedy (Inheritance).

Myles Nestel, The Solution’s Craig Chapman and Steven C Miller are lead producers, alongside Monty The Dog’s James Michael Cummings and Jim Cardwell, Pimiente Films’ Luillo Ruiz, and Sevier Crespo. The Solution is handling international sales.

Executive producers include Tom Ortenberg, Frank Grillo, The Solution’s Lisa Wilson, Rainmaker Films’ Clay Pecorin and Russell Geyser, Burke Entertainment’s Vanzil T Burke and Victor T Burke, and Sherborne Media’s Gary Raskin and Alastair Burlingham.

“The Briarcliff team is thrilled to partner once again with The Solution Entertainment Group on Werewolves,” said Briarcliff CEO Tom Ortenberg. “With Steven C. Miller behind the camera, audiences are in for a nail-biting big screen experience.”

“We are super excited to be releasing Werewolves later this year exclusively in theatres,” added Myles Nestel, co-CEO of The Solution. “Our cast is incredible from the amazing Frank Grillo to powerhouse performances from Katrina Law and Ilfenesh Hadera. The use of practical werewolves designed and built by Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff Jr (known from the Alien and Predator series) takes the genre back to its roots in a fresh and exciting way. We hope audiences will have as much fun experiencing the film in theatres as we had making it!”
